Myron Dewey  SCHURZ, NV

Thanks to all who have supported this cause to protect our sacred resources. As you know there have been many challenges in providing just media coverage at Standing Rock. These challenges include, but aren’t limited to: StingRay signal jammers, frigid winter temperatures, minimal infrastructure, and mainstream media bias on reporting. We have worked tirelessly to get the truth out to you and vow to continue to do so. We ask for your help!



We are raising funds because doing front line media is not without cost, equipment can be expensive, it can and is being targeted. They took our drone claiming to have a warrant when they did not. Let's raise enough cash to replace it so we can have another pair of eyes back in the sky ASAP. We have also been provided with an RV that we aim to turn into a mobile editing studio, this will help get everyone media out to the public in an efficient and effective manner. Even a couple of bucks helps, we have stickers and buttons to show our appreciation.

Mobile & Wireless Technology has helped Digital Smoke Signals break though the "Forced Digital Divide" when uploading 4K footage to FaceBook, Youtube and Online media outlets.  

With your help, we will be strengthening our
WIRELSSS TECHNOLOGY and MOBILE EQUIPMENT.

Thank you from the 4-Directions at Oceti Sokowin, Sacred Stones Camp in North Dakota and on the Front Lines

Indigenous Peoples’ sacred sites, water and traditional harvesting places are in danger of climate destruction, pollution and overharvesting devastation. THIS IS A VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS - ALL OUR HUMAN RIGHTS.


Myron is a Native American film-maker, digital storyteller, youth media trainer and language preservation app builder. His work can be seen at DigitalSmokeSignals on Facebook



If you would like to help me do what I am already doing on the front lines filming evidence, then this is how you can help. Contribute & Share


Having the proper media kit to be mobile and flexible is imperative to sharing our story.


For those of you who can only offer as viewers and sharers, please CONTINUE doing what you do, share, share, share. DigitalSmokeSignals on Facebook

I appreciate your support.

Your contributions will be presented as a visual in my work to protect destructive climate change for all Humans Rights in the 4-directions.

Thank you everyone for your support in helping me tell our story through Indigenous Eyes.
Even though I. was arrested sharing the story, I continued to document, educate and empower youth media, women's media and independent media at Standing Rock.

Because of your help, this documentary will be showing at the Tribeca film Festival in New York City. This project is co-produced with Josh Fox who did the documentary Gas Land.

I am currently working on the full length documentary. The title will soon be released.

Again, thank you all from myself and
Digital Smoke Signals team,
Many blessings

Thanks to all who have supported this cause to protect our sacred resources. We are in California speaking to the people here and the support is amazing. There's a unique opportunity that has been placed in front of us and unless the situation was as serious and demanding of us to raise awareness of the injustices playing out the persecution of water protectors by a biased legal system we would not need to rise up to new heights and take on even more of responsibility in telling the story of indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. Digital Smoke Signals – Time to go mobile! We are working to raise 100K in 100 hours to acquire a MOBILE MEDIA COMMAND CENTER fully equipped with a stand alone satellite. This mobile editing studio will be used to continue document the injustice being faced at Standing Rock and by the Water Protectors. This mobile media center will allow for 24/7 media broadcasting via independent satellite link from the front lines.

Myron, you have given me a vision of the prairie, the camps, the sites of action by the Water Protectors, and the beautiful powerful rivers that has moved and changed me. I lived in Bis/Man for 12 yrs, taught @ UTTEC, and visited the camps in September. I use your videos in my classes and presentations and the response is always mind-awakening in my students. My gift is a small one compared to the size of heartful love and prayerful energy I send to you every morning when I make smoke and prayers for you and your team. A ho. Mni Wiconi WATER IS LIFE ♥

The entire world is watching Standing Rock.. It is drilled into our American heads that USA is the greatest country in the world and the govt is for the people and governed by the people. Not so. The illegal actions by the energy company and the local govt make a mockery of our democracy and bring shame upon our country. It is a very very sad time in our country to see people. sprayed by water cannons in freezing temps for peaceful protest and the govt assisting an energy company that tramples on human rights and breaks the law by violating the constitution....why are our tax dollars being spent protecting an energy company that plans on selling. this energy to foreign countries? a USA energy sent to foreign govts that may or may not hate the US.. President Obama has the. opportunity to stop this madness and leave a fine legacy....Since the Pres has not stepped up for US it is up to US to stop this corporate greed monster.

I am the holiday shopper that enabled Su'ana Mompittseh's recent donation through her beaded items on Etsy. Wanted to extend a personal thanks. Your work prepared me for my Thanksgiving week visit and keeps me connected now that I have returned to West Virginia to fight the pipeline, fracking and mountain top removal coal mining struggles that affect our water here. Trusted media coverage & documentation is of vital importance.
